“Imminent Demise or Potential Rejuvenation?: The Future of the Scholarly Monograph”

New forms of scholarship are reshaping both the format and the role of the scholarly monograph. While analysts usually focus on new formats and tools made possible by digital media, keynote speaker Laura Mandell will discuss how changes in the content of arguments made possible by digital forms of scholarly research will impact scholarly communication. Can the monograph be transformed from hierarchical data filter (via argumentation) and a token of prestige into a virtual research environment, and, if not, will it survive?

New Roles for New Times: Research Library Services for Graduate Students

The report proposes that the growing number, and heterogeneity, of graduate students and programs presents opportunities for research libraries to provide segmented services targeted for students at different stages of their academic and demographic life-cycle.

Through their interviews, Covert-Vail and Collard found an enthusiasm for a broad range of new services, from advanced data manipulation and visualization to softer skills-based instruction in time management and writer’s block. They also report that new configurations of library space, housing aggregated services into research or scholarly commons, for example, can both create and leverage collaborations within the larger institution.

Finally, the authors present different strategies for staffing graduate student services, from dedicated positions and committees to more loosely structured teams comprising subject liaisons, technologists, data librarians, and others, who work together to deliver a suite of complex solutions to meet the needs of graduate students in research institutions.
